He also explained that after a series of legal, physical, and spiritual threats, the wife insisted that the unused materials budgeted for the building project before Oko Oloyun’s death be given to her.

“We had been invited to the court 18 times. The EFCC also came to check the veracity of her claim, and we have always been vindicated.

“We can’t inherit our son. It is immoral in Yorubaland, and we didn’t see anybody to support and stand by us. Everyone abandoned us.

“We have suffered, Oko-Oloyun’s friends and associates were nowhere to be found during this challenging period. The wife had turned our grandchildren against us. God will judge her. We have left her to God to deal with her.

“She was a maid in a canteen before our son married her. After the death of our son, she later came to claim she borrowed our child a sum of 10 million naira.

“The wife didn’t allow us to have the time to investigate the killing. She tried all means to get us killed but God has been keeping us alive.

“Even after she remarried, she insisted on inheriting the properties of her late ex-husband”, Oko-Oloyun’s father narrated.

Recounting how the deceased died, his father maintained that the car was an automatic gear type and if the driver had opened the door, Oko-Oloyun might have escaped death.

He added that the two policemen in his convoy did not attempt to defend or repel these assailants while only Oko Oloyun was killed in the cold assassination.
